Our teledermatology service has handled over 600,000 photos over the last 3 years. GPs can share high-quality, IG secure images from a mobile phone directly with Consultant Dermatologists to reduce unnecessary hospital visits and speed up patient care.
Where local clinicians are available, these are used. Where none are available, we use a national network of NHS ‘Virtual’ consultants from the National Consultant Network.
In December 2020, 60% of non-eRS advice and guidance requests were handled via the Consultant Connect Platform (according to the Elective Care Recovery and Transformation Programme – National Advice & Guidance Platform Data).
